USING YOUR BLENDER & CHOPPING JAR
BEFORE FIRST USE
• Make sure the voltage in your outlet is the same as the voltage indicated on
the appliance. This appliance is for 120 –Volt AC electrical outlet only.
• The chopper bowl is equipped with a safety locking system to increase security during operation. The chopper function will not work if the chopper
bowl, blades and cover are not properly locked in place.
• Remove any bags, labels or stickers from the appliance.
• Clean the main unit with a damp soft cloth or sponge and dry thoroughly.
• Wash all of the removable parts – chopper bowl, blades and lid, blending mug
and blending lid using a sponge, warm water and mild dish detergent. Rinse
and dry carefully. Do not wash in an automatic dishwasher.
• Wash the blending wand with mild dish detergent and rinse under running
water, being careful not to allow water to enter the hollow shaft. Dry thoroughly.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
• Do not immerse the main unit in water or any other liquid when cleaning.
• Remove blade if you plan to store the chopper bowl in the refrigerator.
• Do not put the chopper bowl or the blending mug in the microwave
HOW TO USE YOUR BLENDER
Best for blending liquids, including soups, gravies, lattes, salad dressings, powdered
drink mixes and sauces. It may also be used to combine dry ingredients or to
emulsify. This blade stirs while adding a minimum of air to the mixture.
1. Wash and dry all components thoroughly as stated above.
2. Assemble with blender components. Always be sure that the appliance is
properly assembled before using. Blender blades are extremely sharp; never
touch the cutting edge of blades.
3. Insert the detachable blending wand into the main unit’s lower part by turning
the foot clockwise.
4. Add ingredients into the blending mug or other container that is tall enough
to avoid splashing. Add ingredients a little at a time to ensure proper blending
and to prevent overflow. Never fill container more than ¾ full; the action of
the blade and immersing the wand into the container will cause ingredients to
rise in the container. Make large recipes in multiple batches.
5. Unless the recipe states differently, pour liquid ingredients into the blender before solid ingredients. The liquid will help the processing time go faster.
6. Plug the appliance into the power outlet.
7. Dip the blending wand as deeply as possible into the mug, but only up to
within one inch of the connection to main unit; then select the speed, switch
on the unit by holding the speed selector button on the front panel.To avoid
splashing, do not turn the unit on until the blade is beneath the surface of the
6
mixture and do not pull the blender out of the mixture while it is running.
8. Work through the ingredients with a gentle up and down motion. When
blending is complete, release the speed selector button and unplug the unit
from the outlet.
9. Detach the blending wand after unplugging the unit by holding the main unit
and turning the blending wand counter-clockwise.
10. When using the hand blender continuously, it is recommended to stop and let
the machine rest for 5 minutes to prevent overheating.
11. When finished, remember to wash and dry all parts as described above.
Blending Tips
• Liquid should not come closer than within an inch of where the wand attaches to the main unit.
• Do not immerse the main unit in liquid or water.
• Do not let the blender stand in a hot pot on the stove while not in use.
• Do not put fruit pits, bones or other hard ingredients into the blending mixture, as these are liable to damage the blades.
• Do not fill the container too full. The level of the mixture will rise when immersing the wand as well as when blending and can splash or overflow the
container. If you are blending large amounts, separate into smaller batches to
blend.
• Adding liquids that are warm, not cold, facilitates blending solids with liquids.
• When recipes call for ice, use crushed ice, not cubed ice.
• The gentle up-and-down motion described above will mix the ingredients
most uniformly and give you the best result.
• To whip air into a mixture, hold the blade just under the surface of the mixture. Be careful not to raise the blade above the surface and cause splashing.
• To make soup creamy in texture, use the Hand Blender to puree solid ingredients to the desired consistency using a gentle up-and-down motion right in
your saucepan.
• When blending butter, remove the butter from the refrigerator and let it come
to room temperature for best results.

spatula (not included). When chopping larger foods, pre-cut them into pieces of
an even size, approximately ½ inch to ¾ inch pieces.

Chopping Tips
• Do not put fruit pits, bones or other hard ingredients into the mixture, as
these are liable to damage the blades.
• Do not fill the container too full. The level of the mixture will rise when
chopping begins and can hang up on the blade. If you are chopping large
amounts, separate into smaller batches to chop.
• For best results when adding celery to a recipe, use a peeler to remove outer
strings from the celery stalk before chopping.

Miracle Whipping Tips
• To help stabilize egg whites add 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar per egg white
prior to whipping.
• Whip egg whites until soft peaks form that do not droop over. Over-whipping will cause them to dry out and become unstable.
• When adding sugar to whipped egg whites, add it slowly when soft peaks
begin to form and continue whipping to form soft peaks that do not droop
over.
• When whipping heavy cream, best results are achieved when cream comes just
out of the refrigerator before whipping.
• Whip cream just before using. If it must be whipped ahead of time, add a
whipped cream stabilizer. Products to stabilize it can be found in stores or via
the internet.
• Whipped cream can be flavored, sweetened or stabilized.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
After each use and before cleaning, unplug the appliance from outlet and allow the
unit to stop. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN WHILE THE MOTOR IS
RUNNING OR THE COMPONENTS ARE STILL MOVING.
• CAUTION: NEVER IMMERSE THE MAIN UNIT, CORD OR
PLUG IN WATER. NEVER TOUCH THE BLADE ITSELF. ALWAYS UNPLUG BEFORE CLEANING.
• Clean the main unit with a damp soft cloth or sponge and dry thoroughly.
Never use excess water, treated cloths, harsh cleaning agents, or sprays.
• Wash all of the removable parts – chopper bowl, blades and lid, blending mug
and blending lid using a sponge, warm water and mild dish detergent. Rinse
and dry carefully. Do not wash in an automatic dishwasher.
• To remove the spindle, pull of by using two fingertips. Use caution as the cutting blade is sharp. Do not touch the blade itself.
• To wash the chopping blade, run under hot water. Use a brush for washing,
and use extreme caution when drying. The preferred method of drying is to
lay on a flat surface and air dry. Do not leave the blade where children can
reach it.
• Remove the blending wand from the main unit. Wash the detachable blending wand under running water, being careful not to allow water to enter the
hollow shaft. Dry thoroughly.
• Reassemble and store in a dry place, unplugged and away from the reach of
children.
10
IMPORTANT NOTES:
• Do not wash any components in an automatic dishwasher.
• Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.

refrigerator.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The Hand Blender & Chopping Jar will not operate.
• Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
• Is the power supply cord properly seated in the unit and the outlet?
• Is the inter-locking bowl and lid secured properly if using the chopping feature?
• Has the cord been damaged in some way? If so, DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE. Contact Customer Service for replacement information.
The lid will not seat properly.
• Is the product assembled properly?
• Is food blocking the ability to close the lid? If so, you may be processing too
much food or pieces are too large. See Chopping Guide.
Food is unevenly chopped.
• Either you are chopping too much food at one time, or the pieces are not
small enough. Try cutting food into smaller pieces of even size and processing
a smaller amount per batch.
Food is chopped too fine or is watery.
• The food is over processed. Use brief pulses, or process for less time.
Food is collecting on the sides of the bowl or container.
• You may be processing too much food. Turn machine off. When the blade
stops completely, remove cover and clean with a spatula, turning food inward
toward the blade.
Food hangs up on the blade.
• You may be processing too much food or pieces are too large. See Chopping
Guide.
Liquid is spilling, splashing or overflowing the container or saucepan.
• You may be blending too much liquid. Divide the mixture into smaller
batches.
• You may have started the blender before submerging the blade into the mixture.
• You may have accidently raised the blade above the surface of the mixture
during blending.
